Joe Doakes from Como Park writes in re a Carl Bogus column in the Strib:
Modern conservatives are stupid and wrong because they bitterly cling to obsolete sentiments about Commies and God, first articulated by William F. Buckley, Jr. in “God and Man at Yale.”
Modern conservatives see government domination of industry, finance and medicine weakening us economically while free love, no-fault divorce, abortion-on-demand, flag burning and group-identity indoctrination weaken our moral fiber, both threatening to leave our country worse off when our children inherit it than when we inherited it; and we justly resent that trend.
The Bogus piece purports that reading God And Man At Yale will explain everything you need to know about modern American conservatism.
I suggest that while there’s some merit to that, you can actually learn a lot more about the modern media by reading Bogus’ take on Buckley.
